Ellen V. Buzzi-Space
I needed my business cards tweaked and printed post haste to do promotional work at a property I recently sold. I had a simple address change on the existing file and Brian was wonderful to get that done in record time. SOOOO appreciative! I have my full color brochures printed here, professionally finished and bound. I am sure there is much more I can and will plug in to fulfill all my business marketing needs. This is a great STAFF!

Leah E. British International School, The
I recently emailed an alpha graphics team member who's contact information I had saved from a previous order. I was desperate for a last minute order and thought I was out of luck when I learned through email that team member no longer worked for alpha graphics. Not even a half hour later, a different team member emailed me and was able to assist me with my order. Thank you so much for the quick response!

Erin W. 1515 N Halsted, LLC
Emily is the best. I have called her with immediate response, and her estimate response is at a healthy rate, which is important for me to quote my client inquires. Thanks!
Aaron S. Fast Signs
Francisco is great!
Heaven R. Heaven Reynolds
My client needed 6' x 4' signs and they got a quote from a vendor in western suburbs. I knew of Alphagraphics' quality of work and excellent service so I got a quote from Fergus, a true professional. The quote was approximately the same as other vendor. I persuaded client to go with Alpha due to top-notch experience. Client ordered direct from another Alpha person while Fergus away from office (forget his name who offered seamless service). Timeframe perfect. Will always go to Alphagraphics for our print needs. Client does plan on reprinting signs.
Lynn T. Interactive Building Solutions
Staff and owner very helpful
Shannon W. Lincoln Park High School
I appreciate working with a local company that was in touch, gave me job updates, and the option to proof material in person before printing. The job was done correctly and on time! I would never have that level of customer support working with an online website.
Nicole M. Nicole Mauser
Quick turnaround, very professional.
Renee B. The William Everett Group
AlphaGraphics totally saved us!! We had ordered stickers through an out-of-state company online and their delivery date was not going to cut it. Alpha was able to get me an immediate quote and turn my order around faster than they had originally quoted!! Also love supporting a local business in the process.
Lisa G. DISPENSARY 33
Love working with AlphaGraphics - they are always so prompt in responding as well as sending over our printed material!
Emmy K. Oranj
Your service, attention to detail and the finished product are always the best!
Nancy N. Nancy Neill Designs
I have always enjoyed and preferred Fergus Calderwood's account management over Brian or Ken. They're just not as quick to respond or offer alternatives and suggestions.
Chase G. Creative Republic
Francisco was absolutely awesome! If it wasn't for him and AlphaGraphics I would have missed my deadline and potentially lost a client. Can't thank you all enough!
Danny C. Good Neighbor Rx
quick and efficient, got exactly what I wanted
Kelly N. Minte, The
Charlotte Schultz has helped me many times with lots of different projects, and the service she provided has been so helpful. There was one specific project recently required a same day turnaround with a complicated job with a really specific paper stock, duplexing, and color matching, that the team at Alpha really saved me on. I really appreciate the super high level of service and quality.
Allie H. Allie Hasson Paper Goods

Angeliki G. Angeliki Garris
Couldnt have asked for better care. I needed a savior, and you guys came through with tight deadlines.
Yehuda M. Yehuda Marcus
I've used AlphaGraphics multiple times and they always exceed my expectations. This time around I worked with Fergus to have a 30 page book printed and spiral bound, which turned out absolutely perfect! He was so patient with me as I worked through what I wanted. He gave me multiple estimates to help narrow things down and even printed a color proof for me. I definitely recommend working with AlphaGraphics. You can't beat the quality, quick turnaround, and reasonable prices!
Carolin L. Carolin LeBlond 1
The order we made went completely wrong and we found out about it on Friday evening, your team managed to fix 300 new correct booklets within a night for me and brought it that Saturday morning the show where we were exhibiting. Thanks!

Fergus was very helpful when I was placing my order and the price/deals were incredible. Thank you for helping us with our project!

Fergus provided excellent communication. Estimate was provided very quickly. This is the second time I've ordered posters here and I will continue to use Alphagraphics for any and all local needs.
Claudia K. CMEology
I am based in Portland and needed to have prints done for colleagues attending an event in Chicago. Doing this sort of thing remotely can be very challenging, but Francisco was wonderful to work with. He was responsive to my inquiries, called to make sure there was clear communication and delivered everything I needed on time and looking great. I really appreciate his work and will absolutely use Alpha Graphics for future events in Chicago.
Lindsey C. GOOD DATA
Fergus was an absolute delight to work with. He made great recommendations to improve the quality of my printed material. I would HIGHLY recommend working with AlphaGraphics to anyone who asks.
Kate C. Kate Czuba

Lauren W. Lauren Whitney Photography
Wonderful and easy
Tatiana B. Learnship Corporation
Fergus was absolutely fantastic to work with. I was printing displays for my mother's funeral. the print quality was excellent, and I got tons of compliments on them. The best part was that I was trying to figure out how to get them in a suitcase. Fergus suggested they could be shipped directly to the church. This worked beautifully and saved me an enormous hassle. I would not have considered it without his advice. He provided excellent service and reminded me why I chose Alphagraphics.
Tori B. Tori Brovet
Fast turnaround time
Doris H. Loyola University Chicago - School of Social Work
I had a hard deadline and you worked very hard to help me get the product on time. A special Shoutout to Francisco. He was nothing short of awesome and understanding!
Francisco M. Graphics 255, LLC - Marketing
Brain Murdoch is Awesome! I've only been working with Alpha for a few months now, but the attention to customer service and the quality of the advice/material/knowledge is outstanding. And thats without ever even stepping foot in the physical office on Evergreen yet! Looking forward to working with Alpha on more projects in the future. Thanks guys!

Communication was quick and efficient. I never wondered what was going on or what the next steps would be.
Ally G. MKT Properties
Communication via email was prompt. And turnaround was fast!
Amanda I. Slate Design Ltd.
Catherine Lauro in Chicago was excellent to work with, went above and beyond. Took our fairly rudimentary graphics (not in PDF) and turned them into perfect postcards. Recommended the right cardstock for glossy front, write-on back. Pricing was the best of 3 local quotes. When I couldn't make it during open hours to pick up the order, Catherine delivered to my downtown office, in person!
Amanda G. Amanda Grace Edwards
Great experience working with Rob and the Alphagraphics team. Will recommend to friends and look forward to utilizing their services again!
Jd C. Guaranteed Rate
Brian is always very responsive and accommodating to our requests. The turnaround time is always very short, and I never have to worry about meeting deadlines or having any delays. He makes the entire process very easy!

ABOUT THE OWNER
AlphaGraphics Chicago North had been serving the printing and communication needs of Chicago businesses for 24 years before Rob purchased the company in September of 2011. "We work with small and mid-sized businesses to provide marketing, mailing, printing and design services, often for companies that do not have those capabilities internally," states Rob.
Rob has worked in a number of different industries, initially in marketing, and moving to mortgage, banking, title insurance, financial services and now back to marketing and printing. All along, Rob's most treasured asset has been his network and the relationships he has forged and maintained in Chicago.
Regardless of industry, company, or position, Rob has always built businesses and/or departments thorugh his own efforts. His network was originally created within the real estate industry while working in the mortgage banking industry. As his network continued to expand, he moved into commercial and private banking.
In 2003, along with his attorney partners, he launched a new company, Synergy Title Services LLC. In just over four years, he built and sold the business to a national competitor. After the sale, Rob migrated back into banking/financial services, first with JP Morgan, and then with Morgan Stanley, while acquiring several licences including: Series 7, 65, 63 and State of Illinois Insurance.
Rob lives in the Lakeview neighboorhood of Chicago. He is married with two children. He is an avid runner, having completed the Chicago Marathon twelve times and having qualified and ran the Boston Marathon in 2010. Rob also completed the Ironman Wisconsin Triathlon in 2011. Rob is also an avid skier, both on the water and on the slopes, and is a youth lacrosse and softball coach.
